If you have read my earlier posts or follow me on Instagram, you must be aware of how big a fan I am of online shopping and how often I buy online and share the posts on my social media handles.
Many a times I get queries not only from my readers but also friends, asking for best online shopping websites in India, if online shopping is safe, payment methods etc.
how to shop online smartly in an older post, I am covering 7 reasons in today's post on why Online Shopping has become a convenient and fun shopping option in the present times :
- Most of us have full-time or part-time jobs which leave us hardly any time to visit different markets and explore our favorite brands/stores. And here come E-commerce portals which not only allow us to check out the latest collections of various brands, but also give us the comfort of getting them delivered at our doorsteps.
- While few years back only a few brands were present at online shopping websites, in last few months almost all the major Indian and International brands have made their presence felt online through their private online shopping websites or in collaboration with the leading portals.
- I remember a few years back I wished that websites offered an option to pay Cash on Delivery as I didn't feel safe paying online. And now all the websites offer multiple payment methods which not only include Net Banking, COD, debit card, credit card but also payment through GVs or Store Credits. You can also use special offers like Snapdeal Promo codes to make your shopping experience more fun.
- Gone are the days that the major issue of shopping online was whether we would be able to return the goods if they were damaged or didn't fit well. The major online players now offer Easy Returns and Refund/Exchange options.
- Most amazing part of shopping online these days is finding the best offers and discounts on basically everything. Not only can one find discounts on apparel and accessories, but we can also order food online and get discounts on our favorite restaurants using deals like Foodpanda coupons.
- All the online shopping websites have improved their layouts which allow you to find any outfit or accessory by typing in the search box any category or the trend you are looking for.
- With increasing competition, the major players in online shopping industry have come out with interesting features to attract us and make shopping easy for us. These features include style tips, blogs, lookbook sections, and Style Guide over Call etc. which has come as a benefit for all online shopping lovers.
